Associate Professor Kira Westaway from Faculty of Science and Engineering provided an opportunity to share real learning experiences using a bank of mobile Virtual Reality (VR) stations for campus wide applications. Kira explains the importance of providing real life experiences for galvanising student curiosity, engagement and commitment and for preparing students for the workplace. The rigs place the students right in the middle of the action making them the masters of their own learning journeys, they allow the students to be transported to the ‘coal-face’ of their discipline and help them to visualise the everyday reality of their chosen profession.
